This blog documents the progress of our super-cool, pre-fab home "somewhere" in the wilds of Northwest Arkansas. Rocio Romero designed the home, model LVL, and incorporated our custom modifications. GC Don Lourie is doing the build and architect Brad Satterwhite is providing additional ingenuity.

Our Private Island

Now we're cooking! The kitchen is looking incredible with the island countertop in place. I was a little hesitant about my decision to go with the obsidian Paperstone surface, but I think the stainless really balances the dark counter by reflecting so much light. We love how the island adds some nice mass and creates a dramatic focal point to the space.

I can't wait to build my LVL. Thanks for sharing these pictures, they are a huge help in creating the vision that I have for mine. What kind of fridge is that? I heart it.
